Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America scratch their heads over White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s special briefing to scold the media over coverage of crowd size at the inauguration and the location of the Martin Luther King bust in the Oval Office. They also shake their heads as the huge “women’s march” is really nothing more than an anti-Trump movement that likely turned off more potential allies than it attracted with all the vulgar speech and costuming.
